Huawei teases long battery life for the Huawei Mate 9 in a new T.V. ad
posted by Alan F. / Oct 28, 2016, 3:53 AM
Thanks to a new television commercial (or video teaser if you prefer) we now know that Huawei has something special planned for the battery life on the upcoming Huawei Mate 9 phablet. The beginning of the video shows a smartphone battery icon with one red bar, the universal sign of impending battery death, with a question posed. "Do you hate this too?," asks the video.
The spot than captures comments from smartphone users that we can all relate to. "You know the moment when your battery jumps from 40% to 21% and then it turns off all of a sudden?," asks one perturbed phone owner. A female phone owner says that when her phone runs out of battery, she is lost. Another says that recharging takes too long.
In the last couple of years, we have seen manufacturers add rapid recharging systems that fill up a huge percentage of a battery quickly. Certain new features extend battery life by shutting down background activity on certain apps. But with the explosions taking place on the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 possibly battery related, some smartphone owners are worried about companies messing around with these power packs in an attempt to squeeze as much life as possible out of each full charge.
Check out the ad by clicking on the video at the top of the story, and tell us what you think Huawei has up its sleeve pertaining to the battery on the Mate 9. The phone is expected to be unveiled on November 3rd.

"You know the moment when your battery jumps from 40% to 21% and then it turns off all of a sudden?," I've owned various smartphones since about 2009 and I have never ever ever experienced this. Is it a common occurrence or something? In other news, the battery life on my Mi5s Plus is epic, I'm not a power user by a long shot, but I've got 85% left after 8 hours of usage :)) Even on heavy days I've still got about 40% left at the end of the day. Yay !!

last time I experience that is when I still use nokia's dumb phone (2003 or 2004 maybe), and sometime the battery jump from 20% to 70% after 5 minute of charging and that mean the battery needs to be replaced, lol...

"my phone takes 4-5 hours to charge" maybe he uses an iPad for phone calls.

Still no phone to date beats the Xperia Z3/Compact in battery life. I don't know what the hell Sony did with that generation of phones but it's the only phone to date that literally lived up to its 2 day battery life claim. Only downsides were they took nearly 3 hours to charge from 0-100.

I'm on my 2nd Huawei device. Little over two years ago, I saw a device called a hua-wee (before I learned how to pronounce the name) Ascend Mate2. Had this huge battery & display but only a 720p screen, and SD400 chip. Bought it from Amazon...just in case. After a week, I was SOLD! Ran that thing and not one issue with stock firmware. When the 8 was released, the price for me said no way. Now that the 9 is about to be released, I noticed the 8 price DROPPED. Picked one up about a month ago. Works as well as the Mate2, but FASTER.
